Fibrosing lung disease
We diagnose and manage all forms of this condition (also known as difficult or interstitial lung disease), including sarciodosis, lung problems in rheumatological diseases and vasculitis. High resolution CT (computerised tomography) used for diagnosis and prognosis.

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
We treat COPD through medication, nutritional advice, pulmonary rehabilitation and other methods. Our research helped establish the national guidelines for dealing with COPD and we are currently investigating lung volume reduction treatment.
We see patients with difficult-to-manage acute and chronic respiratory failure admitted from hospitals from around the UK.
